It’s about putting your toe in the entrepreneurial water – perhaps through doing a short-term business gig or a pop-up business- and then seeing what happens. It shows you how to listen to the customer and work out why failures may happen, and when they do, you’ll learn how to deal with them and create a new business that is robust and ready to grow.’
Co-Author Rachel Bell comments “We understand the importance of being smart, not just clever. That education and intellect alone is not enough to be a voice of influence; University is no longer simply the answer. Richard and I wrote Start-Ups, Pivots and Pop-ups as we both have a wealth of business experience that we wanted to share, the good and the bad, some of my biggest lessons have come from my fallouts, and ultimately pathed the way for my ventures.”
